Verdict

SPACE TRAVELLER (NAP) scored at Doncaster in a manner suggesting he has more to offer with the gaining of experience as he looked far from streetwise in obtaining a debut success. He concedes 6lb to Roulston Scar and also, perhaps surprisingly, drops back to the minimum trip but receives the vote in the belief that he will improve considerably for that first experience. Roulston Scar also shaped well first time up but the form of the race does not appear as strong. He, nevertheless, remains the chief danger. Jordan's Chris showed little on debut and the two newcomers will have to produce strong performances to trouble the leading pair.
